Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

What is this Edible Cinema and how I have I never heard of it. Just finished the first season and I'm desperate for some baked ziti.

Less cool than the Sopranos, but when I watched through Cougar Town last year, it did get me wanting to get into wine.

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

So, I started the Sopranos. Finishing up season one. Started this three times now and never made it past the third or fourth episode. I've enjoyed what I watched, but for whatever reason have never managed to stick with it. I was in the mood for a day-in-the-life style mafia piece, something like G...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

I'm on Volume 11 of Hellblazer at the moment. Really enjoyed the Garth Ennis run, Paul Jenkins' run is a bit less compelling. I have 11-14 available in physical form from my library, but I'll be switching to Hoopla to read the rest. Also, just found out Vertigo's Lucifer series by Mike Carey is avai...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Fallout: New Vegas Halo 3: ODST Halo 4 Finished Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 this week. ODST is fine, just a quick FPS romp in the Halo-verse but it didn't really blow me away. It's solid and does what it was supposed to do, but I got more from it's soundtrack than it's story. Halo 4 was pretty fun! Goo...

Re: Board/Card Games - The obligatory "analogue" gaming thread

I'm not too sure if Codenames has appeared in this thread yet. Been playing it with the girlfriend and can't wait to try it out on the rest of the family when Christmas is allowed. Sometime in late August? Who knows... Anyway - Codenames is great. Dead simple to explain the rules, quick rounds and ...

IGNORE - I see the patreons already have it. This might be a sign I need to sign up and start throwing some money your ways. :)
Yep. there was a full episode of all the games announced. The Patreon is always worth it!

Re: Tetris Effect and Tetris 99

I'm playing it on Xbox, but not sure what you mean but maybe I'm not well versed in Tetris techniques. Is hard dropping when you press the button to make it drop instantly? Yeah, when I switch the block I have saved, it instantly drops, right in the middle and in the worst positions. I'm using a Wi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Reactivated my Gamepass for PC. Stupid Ultimate deal was $1 for a month with two extra months free. What the heck is that? Anyway, I'll be going to Halo 3: ODST next and then, most likely, right into Halo 4. And then I'm Halo-ed out, until the decide 5 is worth putting on PC. Offhand, I also downloa...

Re: Games Completed 2021

I finished Fallout: New Vegas last night. Before that, I did complete two of the DLCs, Honest Hearts and Old World Blues. I think that did me a disservice because, before that, I was 100% into the game and enjoying the whole thing more than I did Fallout 3. But, those DLCs sort of wore me out and sl...

Agreed about the lack of Argo!
Spoiler: show
I had a gut reaction and literally gasped out loud when I thought he fell to his death. I was not in a good mood during the end of the game. You know, until he's back. But, then he has that limp? Poor Argo, he's just being the best...

Re: 452 - Monster Hunter: World (recording 16th Jan)

I never played a Monster Hunter game before, but all the hype around World when it was released, along with those impressive, gigantic monsters made this game my first jump into the franchise. I was still a bit hesitant because of the talk about how the game could be complicated or the difficultly c...
